Refining the Groups grid

By default, the Groups grid all groups associated with each manager connected to the console. If the same group is configured for more than one manager, it appears in the grid multiple times - once for each associated manager. To help you work more efficiently with a long list of Groups, you can use the Refine Results pane to apply filters to the groups grid to reduce the number of displayed groups.

When you select an option in the Refine Results pane, the grid refreshes to only display items that match your selected refinement options. The remaining items are hidden in the grid. To restore these items, click Reset or select All in your refinement lists.

Below is an example of the Refine Results pane.


The following table explains how to use the selections in the Refine Results pane.
